The Rift Valley Provincial Commissioner Orsman Warfa has reassured the residents of Rift Valley that the region will not experience any disruption of peace during the election period.
Speaking on Wednesday during the 49th Jamuhuri day celebrations at Nakuru's Afraha Stadium, the PC said that it is high time for Kenyans to change the perception they a have about Nakuru being a hot spot during the elections time.
Warfa further said that the Kenyan government has put everything into place and that there will be no skirmishes come March 4th next year.
“Kenyans have developed this perception of unrest in Nakuru and Rift Valley but that has to change because the government of Kenya has put everything in place to ensure there will be no recurrence of 2007/08 skirmishes,” said the PC.
He at the same time blamed the media for creating an atmosphere of tension in the region by misleading Kenyans.
However, the PC urged the media to be objective in their reporting by avoiding individuals' opinions so as to promote peace in the Rift Valley.
Warfa also put all the aspirants and politicians on notice saying that the administration remains vigilant on them and the law will act swiftly should they find any leader inciting Kenyans against each other during this time of campaign.
On the issue of registration, Warfa called out on Kenyans to spare some time in their busy schedules and get registered as voters within the remaining days.
